Blog: Kinky & Trans
Nem Rowan wrote a blog post on being kinky & trans for this event:
This will probably sound silly but I decided to write The Ruiner (or The Things We Hide At Home, in its original incarnation) after getting angry about 50 Shades of Grey. Yes, angry. Not because it is so badly written, not because of its misogyny or because it perpetuates a lot of really bad myths about people who enjoy BDSM (well, actually, yes. All of those things made me annoyed). I was angry because of its complete disregard for reality and the healthy ways to practice BDSM. I’m not angry anymore, since I wrote my own book about BDSM. And I intend to write more.
The Ruiner follows a trans man named Tenny; he is a Dominant, and he’s single and looking for a new partner. He meets David at the beginning of the story, and he’s incredibly shy and quite bookish, but also hopelessly in love with Tenny. Unfortunately, at the same time, Tenny realises he’s being stalked by someone who is out to make his life hell. And it gets scary pretty fast.

Review: THE RUINER by Nem Rowan
This book was a rollercoaster of emotions. The ending was so tense, I didn’t want to stop reading!
TL;DR review:
A BDSM club, kinky stuff, a mxm pairing that I shipped so hard it hurt, a trans MC, a well-written and terrifying stalker… All in all, a delicious mix of queer romance and thrilling horror.

Blog: On Writing Polyam & Sex
I’ve also written a blog for the occasion, where I discuss polyam & sex. Keep an eye on the Gurt Dog Press site/my Twitter & Instagram if you want to catch it as soon as it goes up 😊
~ I shall also include it in the next newsletter ♥
A preview:
One of the things that “stand out” about my published book MY LORD is the fact that it features polyamory. For the people wondering, yes, I am polyamorous myself. When it comes to polyam, or even just non-monogamy, my husband and I have been that way from almost the very start of our relationship—though, at the time, we lacked proper terms to describe the nature of our dynamic. I won’t go into the details of it all, but suffice to say there’s plenty of experience that I can draw on for my writing.
